• Fractures Fixed Price Package

As in humans, fractures are relatively common in both dogs and cats. The type of fractures that occur can vary greatly and with that there are a wide range of treatments available.

Whilst fractures can be distressing for both the pet and owner, the positive news is that, with the correct treatment, most fractures in dogs and cats will heal well with the majority of animals regaining normal use of their limbs.

Treatment options

 The best treatment for most pets is to undergo a surgical procedure in which the broken bones are realigned and stabilised. Options for stabilising the bones include:

  • Bone plates and screws
  • Pins that are placed inside the bone
  • External frames that are connected to the bone using pins going through the skin.

Some fractures are relatively simple to manage, and others are very complex, necessitating considerable orthopaedic instrumentation, implants, and expertise.

Our fixed-price packages are based on a simple fracture of the radius/ ulna or tibia/ fibula, if you require an estimate for a more complex fracture, please contact our team directly.

Concurrent conditions

All fixed-price packages include the surgery required to treat a single, commonly diagnosed clinical condition. Should the clinical condition be more complex (e.g. a complex fracture e.g. comminuted/ double plated), or should the patient have medical co-morbidities (e.g., BOAS, diabetes, heart disease, hypothyroidism, etc) a supplemental charge may be applied.

Advanced Imaging

Should CT be required this will be in addition to the package price.

  • There’s never a problem speaking to our lovely receptionists at Kentdale Vets to book an appointment; my little girl would not be with us now without Jan, her surgeon and the brilliant nurses that looked after her.

    Stephen – Nancy’s owner

  • If I could give a higher score, I would! This being our second referral, it has felt like coming home, and to feel that when we arrive with major trauma to our dog is wonderful. Immediately we were in smiley, reassuring, safe arms again, and our crisis rapidly disappeared. The immediate welcome from the reception staff to Kirstie, amazing Joe and even the reassuring and friendly night nursing staff all let us know our precious boy was in very safe hands. Can't speak highly enough - and this is a consistent standard.

    Ani – Floyd’s owner

  • Great communication between myself and the staff was kept updated, and they took great care of my dog! The operation went perfectly, and the scar has healed nicely, considering its place! Gave simple and easy-to-follow after-care steps!

    Kim – Bella’s owner

  • Felt my dog was safe with you, and treatment would be done with his best interests coming first. Follow-up physio with Genie and now Emma were excellent. Friendly staff.

  • I cannot say how amazing Kentdale is; your exceptional service and kindness. Thank you.

    Victoria – Lulu’s owner

  • All the staff go out of their way to be helpful. Nothing is too much trouble, and no question is considered stupid or a waste of time. They treat my dog, Riley, with respect and kindness and me the same. I can’t thank them enough for their help on what has been a rough road for Riley and us.

    Pat – Riley’s owner

  • Excellent doggy care. Nothing too much trouble, and the team all look happy in their jobs. Simon was great with us, and Henry kept us informed and gave clear explanations. Definitely would recommend it.

    Alison – Henry’s owner

  • Full confidence in the skills, equipment and expertise of the whole team. Assured by the staffing levels to respond to unplanned events during procedures and recovery. Across the team, the ability to explain and advise.

    Graham – Winston’s owner

  • The team have been so helpful in looking after Cuin and ourselves after what turned out to be a traumatic experience. We can't thank them enough and would definitely recommend their services.

    Cuin’s Owners

  • Expertise, kindness, empathy, time spent explaining incredibly difficult situations. Efficiency.

    Pet Owner

  • I really felt like me and my dog Mollie were being looked after as soon as we walked through the door. Friendly faces on reception and Jan the consultant was very thorough, friendly and I felt Mollie was in very good hands.

    C. Waterhouse, Pet Owner

  • Very nice waiting area where thought has been given to the layout for having multiple pets in at the same time. Friendly and welcoming staff. Very thorough and professional vets.
